Peripheral Thought is a media collective with the intention of bringing together contributors of diverse national, political, disciplinary, and educational backgrounds. Our horizons are transnational, the scope of the problems and challenges we see through our respective lenses, global. Unlike mainstream journals, magazines, and platforms of a similar type, which often proscribe the prevailing world order as universal and immutable, we seek vantage points grounded in particular histories and legacies, with an eye towards building a world after capitalism, globalization, and imperialism.

The name Peripheral Thought refers to a Periphery in world-systems theory, a framework we draw from frequently in our analysis. The “global periphery” under capitalism is synonymous with the global south; the vast majority of the world, composed of colonized nations engineered to serve global empire and transnational capital, which at this current juncture in history is centred in the United States and to a lesser extent Canada, Great Britain, and the European Union. The exploitation of the periphery’s natural and mineral resources, land, and labour, sustains the dominance of the “core” countries, particularly their elite. The name Peripheral Thought emphases our commitment to challenging the dominance of American and American-influenced theory in our understandings of the contemporary world, and sustain an intellectual foundation in those frameworks and theories developed or inspired by the struggle of the periphery.
